Someone has given me a response on this in a thread above. References have been made to legislation and everything.
His opinion: Still copyrighted.

My opinion. Any copyright expires after 50 years and there is no state that simply can grant "renewals" on it.
1952 + 50 = 2002 meaning it's expired for more then eight years.

When High Noon was first released the copyright law in the USA was 28 years plus a second 28 years if renewed in time- They done change the law to life of the creator plus 50 years or 75 years if a company held the copyright- Then came the Bono Act (As in Sonny Bono who wrote it) and 20 more years was added to copyright for 70 years plus life or 95 years if a company- The old movies that renewed for a second time under the old law were allow a full 95 years from the first time they copyright their films. The intertainment industry have manage to take much of the public domain away from the American public.
